Wonderful shots! The sky has beautiful colors! And the last photo is excellent! Like from a fairy tale!

I like the rank of four houses on your first picture; Seen from France, that's a "very american" picture Ü..And the light of your two shots is so peaceful at this moment of the day...

James, the houses in the top photo: are all except the one on the right, really two houses in one, what I call semi-detached?

They look very nice yet quite old.

I blog here.
A beautiful color of the skies, and even reflecting on the houses. Love the gas lamp (?).
BTW: I saw your commentaries on Regina's post on medical mission in Mindanao. Glad to know. I was born and raised in the Central Philippine Island of Negros Oriental.
No entry for SWF, just blog hopping.
